Yes, at the moment. Peugeot garage quoted £1650 and say it could give up at any time.

If the car is driving fine, then i would suggest the following

1. Check the DPF fluid, see if its low ( i think they are underneath around the passenger wheel)

2. Buy a can of JLM DPF Cleaner. Pour the whole can and then Fill up with premium fuel.

3. Get the car nice and warm and give it a good italian tune up on the dual carriage or motorway. 20/30 miles or so.

If that does not cure the problem then you would either need to have the DPF replaced or removed.

Removing the EGR valve and giving it a good clean with carb or EGr cleaner would help.

That quote is just out of this world.I would try as some have suggested by putting in some additive and giving it a good burn up,but if that doesn't work I would get the DPF hollowed out and mapped out,and also the EGR valve mapped from the system.
I have a 1.6 hdi 110 and a couple of months ago had my DPF and EGR mapped out plus the engine beefed up to 130 bph and it goes lovely.The job was done in half a day and only cost me £300,done by an independent and is now a joy to drive.
